§ 11. Mr. Glenvil Hall
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will favourably consider the payment of out-of-pocket expenses to volunteers anxious to attend Home Guard schools but at present unable to do so because of the cost?
§ Mr. Law
Existing instructions already provide for the payment of out-of-pocket expenses for volunteers attending Home Guard schools. Accommodation and rations are provided free of charge for the period of the course, and travelling expenses are admissible for journeys to and from the school. In addition, a detention allowance is payable where the volunteer is compelled to spend a night away from home on the journey.
